I have acquired one of these cards after looking on the wiki.
It is specifically mentioned on this page


and I am sure there was installation information on this page; which is now

Twinhan are no more; their website is missing.

Where as both my other tuner cards (both PCI dual tuner dvb-t) were
immediately detected (the Peak card working in myth by installing the
package on Ubuntu 9.10 "linux-firmware-nonfree").


I can access all four tuners in mythbackend setup and with watch tv;
selecting any of the four tuners.

The satellite card however is not given an instance/node by udev, but lspci
reports the card:
#lspci | grep Twinhan
05:00.0 Multimedia controller: Twinhan Technology Co. Ltd Mantis DTV PCI
Bridge Controller [Ver 1.0] (rev 01)

myth at myth-server:/dev/dvb$ ls
adapter0  adapter1  adapter2  adapter3
myth at myth-server:/dev/dvb$ ls adapter0
demux0  dvr0  frontend0  net0
myth at myth-server:/dev/dvb$ ls adapter1
demux0  dvr0  frontend0  net0
myth at myth-server:/dev/dvb$ ls adapter2
demux0  dvr0  frontend0  net0
myth at myth-server:/dev/dvb$ ls adapter3
demux0  dvr0  frontend0  net0

Anyone know how to get this running; anyone have success in the UK with
Freesat? I have found this less than satisfactory snippet on linuxtv
the second of which states it is unsupported but there are three drivers to
try. What are people using with success?
